National Civil War Ball
The Original & Official Ball of Remembrance Day
8:00PM, Saturday, November 17, 2018

Sponsored by the Sons of Veterans Reserve,
the Military Department of the
National Organization of Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War

Held at the Eisenhower Hotel, 2634 Emmitsburg Road Gettysburg, Pa.

The proceeds from the ball are donated to the Gettysburg National Military Park to use for preservation or repair of any items in the park deemed in need. Over $80,000 has been raised to help preserve our history at GNMP. If you are attending one of the other balls on Saturday, you are just putting money in a promoter’s pocket.

For pictures of last year’s ball, visit our website at http://www.civilwardance.org/news.html (half way down page).

Cap off a day of parades and ceremonies by attending the original, biggest and best Civil War ball held each year on Remembrance Day. Members of Civil War hereditary groups, both Union and Confederate, and all military and civilian reenactors and all supporters of Civil War preservation are welcome to join in the festivities. Period dress is encouraged but not required.

Authentic Civil War music will be provided by the Philadelphia Brigade Band.

Dancing will be led by the Civil War Dance Foundation, the Civil War Trust’s 2011 Reenactment Unit of the Year. No dance experience is required. All dances will be demonstrated and friendly instructors will be on the floor to assist novice dancers.
